I close my eyes and let my spirit roam free
In between truth and lies, my courage lets me be
The obituary of time and the condolences of hazy days…..
I seek closure in my own freedom,
And settle down in my own lazy ways.
Any day now, I shall be released.
Any way now, the pain will be eased.
The gift of life, paves the way to be immortal,
All I’ve to do, is follow my heart
But not like a mortal.
Breathe in and breathe out
Deep dive into this serene tranquility,
Illumine my mind, body and soul
Empowered by the mystic infinity.
I close my eyes again
As I seek peace, warmth and all that is divine,
Any day now, darkness will fade away
And I shall welcome the sublime.
